    Supercharger - Lowell, AR

    Tesla app now shows it active. We can condition the batteries on the way now. Also the tesla supercharger website only shows it as 150kW

    Supercharger - Lowell, AR

    Charged my 85D yesterday for 45 minutes. Never went above 48 kW. Was pretty cold and my battery wasn't preconditioned though.

    Supercharger - Lowell, AR

    Looks like this is a v2 from the math. 400-420V battery charged at 350A is ~140-150KW

    Is Tesla trying to become the absolute worst service organization?

    I'm probably in the minority here, but being a millennial I prefer doing everything via an app instead of email or talking to some middleman secretary that doesn't know how a computer works to schedule my appointment. "Let me check the schedule" while you hear papers rustle and an "ummm" is now...

    App won't unlock doors....

    Just got mine fixed. Called support and went through a bunch of troubleshooting steps before he "escalated to a tech nerd in a basement". His words not mine!! The escalation engineer "worked his deeper technical magic" again his words. He said wait 10 minutes and try. After 10 minutes I went...

    Pictures with its fuel source

    How about a thread dedicated to cars with pictures of their fuel source included? This solar array is part of a larger 19.1 kW system.

    What's your 90%?

    2015 85D - 90% is 244

    What should my ideal charge percentage be?

    I would say that chart is a good baseline, but not the exact charging rates. I've seen rates almost 20% higher than the chart shows. My 2015 85D with dual onboard chargers charges at an average of 60mph with 100A circuit and 80A charge. I've seen as high as 62mph I've attached a a couple...

    AC Charge or DC Charge?

    I'm going on a road trip in the "new to me" 2015 85D. Super excited to be in the car for 14 hours with 2 kids under 3 :) (has anyone ever said that before?) I had a quick question that I don't think really matters but wanted to get the thoughts of others. What is better for battery health...

    Used Model S Purchase Experience (Arkansas Buyer)

    LOL! We were a one car family and she did the majority of the driving so this will start off as hers. She LOVED it! She's never had a car that wasn't a hand me down that she purchased herself so this is a first. She loves the sound system, ride quality and touch screen. Autopilot..... She'll...

    Used Model S Purchase Experience (Arkansas Buyer)

    I made sure that was part of the registration packet. She said it is usually mailed out to my house 7 days after delivery. If I don't have it in 10-11 days I'll start getting nervous and sending emails. The temporary tag is good for 30 days and I've heard stories of Tesla taking 60 to just...

    Used Model S Purchase Experience (Arkansas Buyer)

    7/22/2019 - Delivery We Flew into DFW. Took an Uber into the service center. We walked into the service center and we were the only people there. Told the front desk who we were and that we had an appointment for pickup. He said "great, I'll go get your delivery specialist." He came back a...

    Used Model S Purchase Experience (Arkansas Buyer)

    7/19/2019 - Confirmation Checked in via e-mail with our delivery advisor and he said everything is great for Monday 7/22 at 11am. Missed a call a few hours later from a Dallas, TX number. It was the service center. In the voicemail they said I need to confirm my appointment by the end of the...

    Used Model S Purchase Experience (Arkansas Buyer)

    Great questions. I will pay Arkansas sales tax (6.5%) when I register the car after Tesla mails me the title. In the bill of sale there were ZERO fees. No doc fees, destination fees, nothing. The website said $40,000 and I've given them $2,500 via credit card deposit and $37,500 via...

    Used Model S Purchase Experience (Arkansas Buyer)

    So I thought it would get more complicated. Nothing too much to overcome though. 7/16/2019 - Issues with registration... Followed almost immediately by this one: Very disappointing news since Dallas is a 6 hour drive from Northwest Arkansas, Nashville is 9+, and Kansas City which wasn't...

    Used Model S Purchase Experience (Arkansas Buyer)

    Yeah, I feel like I'm stealing it. Clean history too. The only thing I can think of is no one wants only a 10k mile warranty (this one has 89k miles) To me, there is no other car under 55k (M3 LR ) even close to this one. I'm so excited, but trying to keep calm before I actually get in the...

    Used Model S Purchase Experience (Arkansas Buyer)

    7/15/2019 - 10pm - I logged into tesla.com and saw a new task for me. "Make a payment." So, like Philip J. Fry I said "TAKE MY MONEY" and put my checking account and routing numbers in and clicked submit. Within seconds I got a receipt via email and now my account shows "Your Model S is fully...

    Used Model S Purchase Experience (Arkansas Buyer)

    July 15, 2019 - 11am "Transfer to Delivery" My Tesla Acount now has an address for delivery, but still says ""You will be contacted by a Tesla delivery specialist to arrange for payment and delivery of your Model S.""

    Used Model S Purchase Experience (Arkansas Buyer)

    Figured I'd keep an updated journal about my used Model S purchase experience. I've read a ton of these already and although some have scared the living daylights out of me, but most have given me to the right information to "just be patient". My expectation for delivery is 3 weeks from...
